Re: printer recommendations?

Hi Phritz,
I use this

I don't know whether refillable cartridges are available for the P50.
Claria are not the densest of inks for negatives but they work well for gum and iron processes,

I don't use pictorica either - agfa works fine for me.

the "p50" is very tempting price-wise.
